That little rubber brake hose that goes from your engine crossmember down to your axle tube, about how long would you say that hose is?

Also, did you replace that hose with a new one, and if so do you have a part number for it?
If he doesn't have a number, I do...

You can run a rear hose on the front axle, then you have more length to run a lift.

Well, lay it on me brother. Apparently you already know where I'm going with this.

Sorry for the delayed response. Tapatalk has been slow on notifications lately. I see the part number has been posted already but here is a fairly updated parts list of what I've bought

Messing around with the intake horn. Kinda like how the distressed Cummins lettering came out

That looks good!

I've been toying with the idea of making one that has a little larger diameter.
Thanks. Eventually if I don't add a intercooler I'd like to make a larger one

The new front seal tool came in yesterday. Had a free minute and finally got the new front crank seal in. That's been a something I've kinda been dreading doing. Fingers crossed it seals properly. I did use the crank sleeve because the crank did have a slight grove in it. Put the front cover on. Just need to torque the bolts down.



Here's a link to it

With the weather kinda cooperating and being in the high 50s after dinner I decided to do a little more work

What's that thing on the front left corner of your frame just behind the front crossmember?

I don't have that on my truck, what's it some kind of an inner brace for the steering box?

I made a steering box brace. A couple companies sell them for around $100 or so. I had enough scrap material laying around so I fabbed my own up

Those stock intake horns on both IC'd and non IC'd engines are real restrictive.

Phase 2 of the build will be more on the "performance" side of things.

I wimped out, bought a Dodge Connection reproduction...I have a stockpile of the box plates though.
I thought about buying that one. But with as much money as I'm spending I figured I might as well save some

My conscious, or whatever you want to call it got the better of me and ordered a rear main seal kit. Not a 100 percent sure if it is actually leaking but I know doing it now will save a lot of headaches later.
